His recent research, “Earth Trilogy” (2015-Current) is an investigation with an emphasis on the thought of the earth as the first foundation of the world. This project placed its – body of works – in what it calls “work in field”, a point that intertwines with its concept of “earthworks”, forms of visuality that, having coffee as an essential material, exhibit the passage of time by the nature of things and, equally, by the things of nature. As some of the selected exhibitions, Arçari presented the solo shows “Terra Dura”, 2017 (Casa Porto das Artes Plásticas/Vitória, Brazil); “Silence – Resilience” (with a Prologue of Drift), 2016 (Sesc Palladium/Belo Horizonte, Brazil); “Wabi-Sabi”, 2014 (Virginia Tamanini Gallery/Vitória, Brazil); “Absência Presença”, 2013 (Homero Massena Gallery/Vitória, Brazil) and the group shows “Finalist Artists Award Energias na Arte – 5th Edition”, 2016 (Tomie Ohtake Institute/São Paulo, Brazil); “Tentativas de esgotar um lugar”, 2015 (Espírito Santo Art Museum – Dionísio Del Santo/Vitória, Brazil).
